What Am I? No Joke

Welcome back to another edition of the What Am I? puzzle -- the best check on your sanity without being hooked to electrodes.  This week we've got a puzzle from the darker side of the automotive world -- you just need to identify the car.

  1. Looks like the side intake and top door edge of a Lamborghini Gallardo wrapped in some insanely tacky Batman & Joker livery.

    So this "joker" claims to have spent $7,500 on wrapping the car before figuring out that it won't start and is selling it rather than having a mechanic look at it because he can't be bothered?

  3. I've never searched vehicle records by VIN but it would be pretty easy in this case since seller provides title.

  4. Hah! $50k seems like a big gamble. Worst case scenario costs would have you putting more into the car than a non-accident, properly running example. And dat wrap. Wuuuut.

  5. Hmmm.... 22K miles, it should be due for its first engine-out servicing, right? Sold for $50K - seriously, this deal smells really funny, mo joke.
